Kyle Hoover, who played in a number of San Francisco/Sacramento indie rock bands including Ganglians, Tiaras, Part Human, Fine Steps and more, has died. The sad news came via indie label Mtn.St.Mtn, who released Tiaras' 2015 self-titled debut. They write, "He was a gem of a human, always had an hilarious story to tell, was loved dearly and will be sorely missed. Rest well buddy."
Alex Sowles, who played drums in Ganglians, wrote on Instagram, "All I can say is let’s just remember his beautiful imagination, ripper sticker guitar licks."
